Nice site.

The term "digital infrared" is a little confusing and hard to imagine though. I wonder if its a filter or photoshoppery or both?

filter most likely.

Frank works in the same place I do, just one aisle over. He doesn't have a MeFi account, so I'm posting this response for him:
Hi Folks. I'm a longtime MeFi reader, but I dont have my own account yet. It's a nice surprise to see my site listed the day before my birthday.

The digital infrared photos on my website are done using an infrared filter over the lens, it is not photoshoppery. The pictures come out of the camera with this colouration. The filter cuts light at 680nm, which lets the tail end of the visible spectrum (deep red) through as well as the infrared, which the camera I used was quite sensitive to naturally.

The effect is that everything that is 'alive' glows green with life, and non-IR reflecting objects like buildings/etc else comes out magenta.

Many older and some newer digital cameras can do infrared. The nikon coolpix i used did this particular kind of result which I enjoyed.

If you have any other questions, drop me an email.

Speaking of birthdays, I should have mentioned that this is my 24th FPP and yesterday (June 10th) was my 24th birthday. Coincidences. Heh.
